Coppermill Road, Staines, TW19 5NW, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom
Presented by the Blenheim Angling Society, the Cargill Lake is 11 acres in size and ready for action all season long.
Known as the Society’s premium specimen lake, Cargill is on the boundary of a nature reserve and noted for wildfowl along with excellent fishing. This lake is rather deep in places, with the River Colnebrook running behind it. This provides another fishing option for anglers if the battle is slow on the lake itself.
Cargill Lake isn’t known for being an easy spot to fish, but the fighting is worth it in the long run. Specimen-sized Old English carp are among the denizens in these waters, while winter pike fishing is also a highlight.
Visitor permits are available, but guests must be accompanied by a Blenheim Angling Society member.
What size do the fish go to?
Fish in Cargill are specimen-sized and rarely caught, which means there are some mysteries in these waters. Tight lines to all who venture here.
What tactics work well?
Fish are attracted to dead baits in the margins at Cargill Lake, while some of the tench and bream might be attracted to varying approaches. Try anything once.
Is parking available?
There is a locked car park at Cargill. Combination numbers are required to unlock the gate.
The lot can be found on the north side of the station, while the lake is situated downstream of the river and across a footbridge.
